The Yellowknife River Territorial Park is a great day use picnic spot. A great place to bring family and friends to have a social gathering. Lots of picnic tables and fire pits to enjoy and only a 15 minute drive from the city. There is a chance a whiskey jack will come over and eat right out of your hand. There is an outhouse and a boat launch. You can get some nice pictures in all seasons and do some fishing in the river. Be sure to check this site out for a few hours of fun.

We had parked here at night from ~11pm-2am in late November and were lucky enough to see the Aurora at this spot. It happened to be very crowded at this night with many tourist busses and vans stopped here, as we were all seeing the aurora. Lots of parking and washrooms too. No lighting at night, as with all of the parks off Ingraham Trail I think, making it ideal to view the aurora

Yellowknife River Territorial Park is a day use park with a boat launch.
Not sure if it closes near the summer solstice as it's bright most of the "night".
A crew of locals drinking heavily around a campfire who we avoided.

Launched our boat here on a weeknight in July and it was crazy busy. Short drive from the city so access is easy and the picnic tables were all full. The boat launch was in good shape and the dock was too.

It's only a several minutes drive from YK. Well patronized, too bad that involves litter, some vandalism and tree scalping. Boat launch and plenty of parking. Pleasant walking paths around. Brave souls jump and swim from the bridge. Some birds and other wildlife. Open in winter for snowy barbeques!
